My specialty is biomedical ultrasound. I have direct experience in the development of systems to acquire and process signal and imaging data using Matlab, Labview and Python. I conducted industry-oriented researches at USP (Brazil), Mayo Clinic (USA), Columbia University (USA) and CEA (France). I favor cross-disciplinary approaches in physics and biomedical engineering and the incorporation of computational simulations toward more effective personalized imaging and therapeutic techniques.
